|Multiple Sclerosis Society Still Needs our Help
Big response from readers
Last issue, we wrote about Multiple Sclerosis and the need to
raise awareness, along with funds, to bring about a much needed cure. I must
say, our response from readers was welcomed...and heartfelt.
Judith is overcoming stumbling blocks, "I have MS, and have
decided to make cards.... Some days my
fingers don't work that well, so I am trying to strengthen them along with
forcing my brain to be creative again."
Jean gave us a tiny description of what it's like on a day to
day basis. "I am prevented from doing
the crafts I love many times because my hands do not choose to work that
day. Even when there is some control,
the time I can work is limited due to fatigue setting in."

With some humility, all of us moms have to admit... it's nice
to be remembered. Mother's Day, as a tribute to our nurturing, spans the
generations. Cricut designed their Mother's Day cartridge with the passing of
ages in mind, offering feminine script of Grandma to Mama and classic flourish
designs to baby carriages.
You may be familiar with Cricut's new limited edition
Solutions cartridges, and Mother's Day is one of them.
The celebration of Moms
will be back every year, but
this cartridge may not. It's a loving addition to

paper residues. This is the perfect shape and design so a soft rubbing

|Crafting Tip of the Day
Giving a distressed look to your vintage designs
Do you sometimes have an antique theme going
on with a card or scrapbook page, but it just looks too fresh? Take a little
sand paper and scuff some of the new color or pattern off, giving it an aged
look. You can even graze the paper's edge, until it has the well worn appearance
of vintage paper that's been handled throughout the years.

adding an adhesive backing to the calendar grid.

Weeks ago, Pam brought the upcoming MS Walks to our attention with
a caring letter for the thousands of afflicted. In part, she reminded us how a
delightful activity can make all the difference.
"There are days that being
in my craft room with my Cricut, paper, glue, brads... or just putting the
thoughts floating around in my head on paper, is the only thing that makes
dealing with this disease bearable.... I'm
sure I'm not the only person that feels like this and I want to try every
avenue I can to hopefully make it possible for researchers to find a cure for
this disease to ultimately make it possible that not one more person will have
to face living their life with the uncertainties this disease brings."
Ann Marie Kosek
Craft-e-corner also has a personal interest in seeing this disease
ended. Carrie Duehring owns Craft-e-corner, along with her husband, Dean. When
Carrie was a child, her own mom, Ann Marie Kosek, was diagnosed with MS. Their family knows
firsthand what it takes to accept the findings, live with the changes, and
continually pray for the cure.
There's an old saying: Pray to God for a good harvest, but don't
stop hoeing. With the help of each other, we're going to keep hoeing and
cultivating this garden of cures.
We personally appreciate your help and prayers.
